Columbia 15316-D... Recorded on November 9, 1927. Green B. Adair is usually mis-labled as a country act due to the records being released as part of the Columbia 15000 country series. They're actually fairly racist comedy skits in the vein of Amos & Andy or Moran & Mack. Lucy Buys Insurance does have a great punchline though.

Brunswick 2843... Recorded on February 17, 1925. Gene Rodemich and his Orchestra were from St. Louis. Between 1929 and 1934 they were featured in over a hundred cartoon shorts produced by Van Beuren, which isn't hard to imagine after listening to their lively version of this popular jazz standard.

Vocalion 5020... Recorded on October 23, 1926. Not Really a song but facinating anyway. Al Hopkins narrates this novelty record while Charles Bowman makes the sound effects with his fiddle, immitating a train and a donkey rather well! The Hillbillies were also known as Al Hopkins and His Buckle Busters on some recordings.

Columbia 15332-D... Recorded on October 24, 1928. Not officially a Skillet Lickers record, this comedic skit was released with a cast list instead of a credited artist. This is probably due to the absence of Riley Puckett and the fact that none of the rest of the group play at the same time. Tanner plays a wild fiddle alone and sings all the musical parts himself. The rest of the group either speak or play background music.

Columbia 15120-D Recorded on November 4, 1926. Bouchillon was, by all accounts, a horrendous singer. To compensate, he invented his own "talking style" of singing and scored some big hits.
